Barnes, the skipper, n young mnn
villi n shy smile, behind which lav a
profound seamanship, wus consulting
the chart wilh Nina. Thoy snw him
reluctantly shake his head, smiling
still, then pass on. Sutcombc went
up to her. Her hend had sunk on
her hand, and when sho raised her
fuce nt his approach he saw so
wistful, so eagvr un expression in hoi'
eves, that it went to bis heart,
"Will you not come into the snloon
and  rest?"  he said,   gently.
.She shook her head. "I ennnot,"
she suid, humbly enough. "We have
been examining the chart again—Oh.
I.ord Sutcombe/ how patient yoti arol

would only laugh at nu', if you
would or.ly tell me tlmt your patienco

"Why should 1 tell you thut which
Is not true?" he responded, his eyes
resting on her bent bend with unspeakable sympathy and tend—'ness.
"Ami yet it would bo so—so natural, so well doservedl" she retorted, bitterly. "Sometimes 1 wonder
why you did not think thut I am
stark, staring mad, that 1 um the
victim of a wild delusion—"
It was Vivienne's word, but she
still smiled.
"For what is it that I have asked
you to do, and you, so generously,
so trustingly, havo consented to
do?" sho went on with a deep sigh.
"Not a very great thing, Burelyl"
he said, trying to answer nnd reassure her in a breath. "Vou have
asked us to leave the direct course,
to turn aside that we niay help you
to find a certain island, of whicll you
know, and which you want us to
"An island not marked on the
chart, a nameless placo, as nameless
and intangible us that of a dream.
Sometimes," sighingly, despairfully,
"I wonder whether it exists only in
a dream: whether I shull wake lo lind
that its only place is in my imagination. And yet—no! if you only
knew! Why do you not insist upon
my telling you all, everything? Why
do you not refuse to continue in.this
mad search unless I give you better
rca-sons for doing so?"
"I—catiso I love you so dearly that
if this island over existed, and the
search were as futile ns that for the
philosopher's stone, I would not
turn from it until my heart told
me you wished to do so," hu might
have replied:  but instend  he snid:
"Why grieve so about the mutter,
Dacima? No harm has been done. Wo
have had, are having, fine weather;
it does not matter whether we reach
port this woek or the next. And
Vivienne is of the same mind as I. If
you would only be less anxious! Do
you think we cannot see thnt the
strain is telling on you, and that we
do _ot—suffer? Ah, do not bo so
unhappy I Nothing—nothing is worth
She pushed the hair from her forehead and looked up at him gratefully-
"How good you are to mo!" she
said in a low voice. "Woll, boar with
me a little longer. Listen, (Lord
Sutcombe. If—if we do not discover
this island to-morrow, I will tell you
why I have persuaded you to turn
out of your course in search of it;
I will tell you—all. It is only fair.
But give me until to-morrow. Barnes tells mu that ha will try a new
course, that he himself foals certain
land, islands, perhaps, aro nearer
than the chart indicates. Give mc
till to-morrow at noon!"
"I will givo you twelve months of
to-morrows if you like," ho snid, fervently; "wo will run in at the next
port and provision the yacht for a
year's cruise—"
She turned from him half impnt-
"Only till to-morrow!" she said,
and sho bent over tho chart ngnin.
Dut her eyes were dim with tho
pangs of disappointment and failure,
for the Ariel had been bi—.ting about
for weeks in seurch of the nameless
Island, and the dream, the bright
dream which she had dreamed tho
night Sutcombc had told her of their
loss, mid she hnd been compelled to
ask them to let her go with them,
was growing faint and pule with thu
sickness of hope deferred.
After a time she folded the chart,
roso rosolutely, und with a gesture,
as of ons throwing off a heavy
weight, went to tho other two.
"From this moment," sho said, "I
will say no more, no, not a word.
If—if w» fail, then you shall think it
was Just a dream, a delusion—ah, do
you think I do not know what ia in
your mindsl" as Vivienno colored und
lowered hor eyes.
".Let us go and have some music,
dear," aaid Vivienne, laying hor hand
on Nina's arm tenderly, for sho knew
that while they remained on deck
Nina's aching eyes would seun tho
sea, that socnuvd to mock her with
its emptiness.
They went below, an*l Nina, acting up to her roSolvc, played and
sang and talked, as if her heart wijre
not racked with suspanso; but as she
lay in her berth thut night the bitterness welled up. in her. And it wus
not altogether unselfish. For as the
Ariel had approached the spot where
sho imagined the Fairy Isle to be,
there bad arisen and grown nn aching longing to see onco mure tho
pluco where she liud suffered—and, uh
yes, for a short time, enjoyed—so
much. Vane Muuncring was lost to
her—sho did not know whether ho
was alive or dead—hut for a fow
flectlpg hours she had basked in tbo
knowledge of hrr own Iovo for him,
and iliii-'hope that hia Iovo might
turn to her,.
Sho Blept at Inst, a fitful sleep, but
wits-up'on deck soon aftor dawn, and
Barnes, at his wheel, touched the
Deak  of  his cup and smiled hit   shv
"Nothing, Barnes?" she asked with
repressed eagerness.
"Nothing, miss," hs admitted reluctantly. "I've changed her course
for west due west, and—wo shall see,
miss. We may sight land before
"To find another group of islands-
hut not those ws want," sho said
with a sigh, as she turned away,
llurnes shook his head at the sails.
Shu who had boen so ready with the
sweet smile, ths gcntlo word which
bud won the hearts of tha mon, as
they had won the hoart of their master, had grown almost irritable and
impatient, and Dames as he watched
her standing at tho bow with her
hand shading hor eyes, hopeless and
incredulous of "Miss Decima's island," shook his head again.
But he held on to his course, and
about noon Nina, who had been leaning against tho taffrail, her eyes fixed
on the sea, uttered an exclamation
and pointed at some object floating
on tho waves.
"Seaweed!" said Sutcombe, coming
quickly to her side, and he turned
towards her with an eagerness almost as keen as her own, then shouted tho word to Vivienne. ln silence,
almost breathlessly, they watched
and waitod. Dut "Miss Decima's
luck," as tho men had grown to
call It, pursued her even now; for as
they gazed a slight mist roso above
the horizon, gradually crept towards
and enveloped tho yacht, shutting
out sea and sky. Down came tho
sails, and the vessel floated like a
bird through the whito fog. They
should have anchored, but Barnes
withheld the order, and, taking
some Boundings, let the vessel drift.
Nina turned away; her eyes wero
dim and on her lips flickered a smile
thut was worse than tears.
"Fate is against mel" sho said.
'"I'he time is up—and I am beaten!
Lord  Sutcombe,  I—I—give  it up!"
"Wait!" ho said. "Look!" and ho
waved his hand toward the mist.
It was lifting as swiftly as it had
fallen; before it had quite cleared out
spread tho sails, and the Ariel drove
through it. Clearer and yet clearer
grew tho air, and then, so suddenly
that they had scarcely time to cx-
cluim, there lay before them the vision of an island, green as an emerald, and set in a golden line of sand,
with the shrill cry of the sea-birds
circling round it, tho waving of the
fir-trees on its crest.
It was Vivienne who first cried out.
Nina stood, her hands clenched on
her bosom, her eyes like those of one
in a trance. Sutcombo turned to her
with an instinctive gesture of sympathy, for her lips wero whito and
her  breath came painfully.
"It is tho Island, at last!" she
The skipper's word of command
rang out, the "Aye, aye, sir!" of tho
men followed sharp upon it, the sails
fell as if by magic, and tbe Ariel
was anchored within, as it seemed
In that clear air. half a mile of ths
Island which even yet Nina could
scarcely help regarding ..s a  vision.
Sutcombc took her hand und pressed it, and she turned to him ns ii
awaking from a dream; but with stir
prise he suw that there was no joy
in her eyes, only on expression of
satisfaction that was not untlngcd
with sadness.
"We will land at once," he said.
"Vou wish il?"
"Yes," she said, "let us go. When
—when we nre there I will tell you,
I will explain; Your patience—ah,
how great it bus been, how sorel.t
tried!—shull not he tried nny longer.
Yes, let us lnnd. llut, wait!" Sbe
put hor bund to her heud us if trying to think, us if some difficulty
hud occurred to her. "Lord Sutcombc, 1 wnnt thut only .vou und
Lady Vivienne and I should bind—at
first, at any rate. Cnn you nuinugo
it   so?"
"Why, of course!" he responded
with un encouraging smile us he
looked into the lovely eyes whose every expression he knew by heart, "I
will tuke just sufficient men to lnnd
us, and they shull reiuuin iu the bout,
until, well, us long us you wish thom
to do so."
She nodded and stood watching the
launching und manning of the boat.
'I'he crew of the Ariel were disciplined like a inan-o'-War's men, nnd thoy
rowed with stolid faces uud incurious
eyes, whatever they may huve fell,
to the nameless Island which they
hud been chasing so long.
As the bout npprouelied the sund-
I'ringed shore, Nina's luce grew puler,
uud she turned it awny from the
others, though there wns no need, for
Sutcombe und Vivienne studiously
avoided glancing ut her, lie helped
lier out of tlie boat, utmost as gently und carofully us lie helped Vivienne! und us if ahsorhod in her own
thoughts, Nina silently led the way
up ibe beach.
Tho huts were still standing as
they had been left, but Nina's eyes
were lixed on a spot where a mound
rose on the shingly strand. Sbe
slood there for a moment, her heud
bent, her lips moving; then she walked  un   to one of the hills.
"(lo ill," she suid, motioning tliem
lo outer her own hill, "tea, 1—1—am

they entered and stood und looked
round' them, nt lust regarding her
with astonishment. "I once lived on
this island. 1 wns wrecked here, with
some of the passengers und the crew
of the Alpina. Sit down, Ludy Vivienne,  I   want to tell yoll."
Leaning ngninst the rough hut she
told (hem the slur.v of the wreck,
that is, a part of llie story, for she
mado no mention of-Vuno Mannering,
who hud boon the prominent figure.
"My fullier died—nud u friend, a
friend who wns like u brother to

Sill combe's   eyes   Were   t'lXltl   on   liel'
with the tciiiliTi'st sympathy.       .
"1—1 am nol surprised ut your
wnnt ing lo find I hr island, at your
anxiety to revisit it,"  bu suid in a
low voice.
llut Nina shook her head. "I had
another reason,*' she .suid. She
might well have snid reasons, I'or
assuredly the longing to see once
ngnin the place in which she hud
tasted such misery und such happiness hud drown here there. "H is

it is that which led mc to nsk you
to let me como with you fin your
cruise, and gave mo courage to persuade you to alter the course of the
Ariel. You remember the night you

Sutcombe nodded. Wus there any

does it not?"
"Host certainly!" replied Sutcombe, all in the durk, but patiently
waiting for the light. "You inherit
everything of which he was possessed."
"I am glad," she said, as if relieved. "Wait for one minutel"
She went outside. Inn even nt thnt

with nn aching hoart; u heart Unit
throbbed painfully with the memories of those short duys of vague, uncertain bliss. 'I'lie whole Island seemed to speuk of Vano; scorned to be

drew her htirul across her eyes and
roused herself from her reverie, and,
going to the back of the hut, scraped awny the soil from a smull mound,
took up two or three of thu pieces
of gold quartz, and, ro-ontci'ing the
hut, laid them on the rough table
just as her father had dune on tbu

Sutcombc and Vivienne looked from

with a smile, ulniost of contentment; for it was sweet to be able to

What They Mean to the Country and
Its People.
Early ln the spring tbe country begins to ask, "How are tbe crops?"
Our prosperity during the twelve
months following tbe harvest depeuds
lu a very large measure on the answer
to this question. Out of the ground
comes our wealth. -In these years of
abundant prosperity the farmer takes
from the earth each harvest season
products of a value of $4,000,000,000,
and more tban a third of this enormous
sum represents the two great crops of
the west—corn and wheat.
The question,' "How are the crops?"
becomes each year, therefore, as the
harvest time approaches one of vital
Importance, and tbe earlier the knowledge of the size and quality of the
crops the more valuable it Is to the
commercial community.   Railway men
need to know ln advance tbe outcome
of tie harvest that they may prepare
for the transportation of the crops to
tho markets.   Bumper crops mean big
tonnage not only of products from the
farms to the consumers, but also of
merchandise from the manufacturing
towns to the farms,  bought  by  the
farmers with   their  produce.    When
railway men are assured of big crops
tbey spend many millions of dollars
for new locomotives and cars and rolls
and many millions more for tbe improvement of tbelr roadbeds and the
extension of their lines into new territory.   The steel makers are Jointly
Interested with the Hallway men ln the
harvest,  for one-fourth of the enormous product of tbe steel mills of tbls
couutry Is purchased by the railways.
When the crops fall the railways cancel
their orders for rails and bridges and
equipment, and  steel  descends  from
prince to pauper.    Then all the big
manufacturers of the country, whether
of wagons or plows, of shoes or clothing,  must know whether their groat
customer, the farmer, ls to have money to spend from harvest to harvest.
So It Is with the merchants all through
tbe agricultural couutry.   Even more
Important Is early  knowledge of the
crop  prospects  to  the  bankers,  who
must uot only finance tho movement
of the crops to market, but must also
know whether tho harvest Is to cause
expansion  or  contraction  of  capital
ventures through the country.    Then
there are the flour millers and elevator
owners, who are directly Interested ln
the marketing of the crops.    Finnlly
there ls tho great body of men who
epeculato In the rise and fall In commodity prices and who risk many millions of dollars In backing their opinions as to tbe volume of the crops and
the demand for them ln the markets

The old coaching days, ns far as convenience for travel was concerned,
were the dawn of the great days of out
present rapid means of communication.
The seventy years or so in which mall
coaches waxed and flourished and
finally died out before the Incursion of
railways and steam engines have a decided flavor of roiuauce attached tc
them, and no doubt the coming and
going of stagecoaches lent a certain
amount of color and interest and life
to the couutry places and towns
through which ran the great main
coaching roads. The Bath road, the
Dover road, the York road were highways of communication along which
rolled the heavy private coaches and
chariots of the couutry magnates, aud
the stagecoaches with their steaming
horses passed the various stopplug
places with the regularity of clockwork.
These stagecoaches, with their complement of coachmen and guards, afforded endless subjects of interest and
Illustration to tbe artist and the literary men of the day. Imagine Charles
Dickens without stagecoaches aud denuded of all his vivid descriptions of
the scenes such as those in the yard of
the White Hart Inn, High street, Borough, in "Pickwick," or of tbe mail
coach on the Dover road lu "A Tale of
Two Cities." It ls difficult forjhe present generation to realize tb? fatigue
and the wintry cold of sucb long Journeys, when frozen feet were enveloped

Rebuked HIb Superior Officer and _■-

Charles Bradlaugh when In the British army was orderly room clerk, and a
newly arrived officer once entered the
room where he was sitting nt work
and addressed to blm some discourteous order. Private Bradlaugh took no
notice. Tbe order was repeated with
an oath. Still no movement. Then lt
came again, with some foul words added. The youug soldier rose, drew himself to his full height and, walking up
to the officer, bade him leave the room
or he would throw him out He went
accordingly, but In a few moments the

It wns clear that the private soldier
had committed an act for which he
might be court martialed, aud as be

which he bnd addressed him, and the

Bradlaugh said, addressing the colonel, thnt the officer's memory must

This coming summer will see one of
the wildest scrambles after mining property ever witnessed In other coun
tries there have b:en districts opened
to slaking at a given hour, a mad chase
has taken place, a fow days' excitement,
and all was over.
At Cobalt the disappearance of the
snow will be the signal, but owing to a
find being necessary before a claim can
be held, and that a lind may not be
made without the expenditure of a great
deal of work, the sight of several hundred men all trying to find dlscuvery
will be indeed an Int-resting one.
The principle of the "grub stake" ls
being employed largely by people desiring to put money Into a Cobalt venture.
The working of a "grub stake" is for
on" man to put up the money, the other
fellow to do the work, and each to share
in the profits (if any).
The class of men that were sent into
the Cobalt district last year on "grub
atakers" was very far from being Ideal.
About one-half of the town site's
population at that time was made up
of young fellows, and old fellows, and
all sorts of fellows, having a good summer'., outing at somebody else's expense.
To prospect ln Cobalt ls no picnic and
the man who would make a find in the
jackpot next simmer has got to be a
hustler, or else toe goddess fortune will
play a funny pi-_.nk.
To prospect with any chance of success the prospector has got to be right
on the ground, so thai he may step out
of his camp in the morning and go to
work at daybreak.
Six miles a day through the Cobalt
bush Is a day's work, so the man who
thinks to do anything by living in a
hotel ln Cobalt and walking out from
town and finding a claim ln the morning,  Is away off.
Prospecting is about the hardest kind
of work a man can go at.
Only the most Inaccessible spots bear
a chance of yielding! anything to a
superficial search. To get near these
spots the prospector must move his tent
and all that Is his on his back. To
flounder thus hampered through the
-bush to the accompaniment of the buz-
zy mosquitoes, and to the tender solicitations of black files, Is calculated to
make one think of what he did with his
winter's wages.
The man who should be selected to be
sent to Cobalt Is he with a good recommendation as a hard worker and as
having a good big stock of horse sense.
Nine chances out of ten the man who
has read his mineralogy and has a host
of technical terms ready to shoot, will
pitch his camp o" a pretty spot by some
lake and start in to enjoy himself.
The man who thinks that mines aro
"found"  is mistaken.
The first finds in the Cobalt region
were the result of accident, but out'
side of that all have been secured only
by hard work. I
Foster, whose quixotic attempt at
stocking his mine was the sensation of
Cobalt a week or two ago, prospected
all the summer of 'S4 and Into May of
'05, and even then lt was his father,
who had recently joined him, who actually made tho find. He started to
amuse himself digging before • breakfast, and uncovered Cobalt bloom right
where the boy's camp was pltche^.
If two fellows go Inlo the Cobalt district to work, and make a serious effort
to try nnd find something, and prospectors generally go ln pairs, what they
need ls a A tent 7x9, some blankets and
a fp,w cooking utensils, ail axe, etc. All

railway's request to be allowed to erect

It will be remembered that such a request was emphatically refused by the
Government some time ago, on the
ground that lt would be unwise to alter
In any way the law forbidding the sale
of liquor in the park. The Globe understands that this attitude was firmly
maintained by the Government at the

again informed that the company could
rent sites, under certain conditions, for
the erection of two hotels If they decided on building two, but that they
would not be licensed to sell liquors,

The     Advantages   and    Beauties    of
Tuxedo Park Described by the Originator of the Enterprise.
Winnipeg.—As the work of developing Tuxedo Park is being pushed forward, a thoroughly modern suburb
will be evolved. Combine the layout
of the city of Washington, D.t*., with
the pleasures, comforts and conveniences of the famous Tuxedo Park,
N.Y.; and you have a fair idea of
what Winnipeg's Tuxedo Park ls to

Mr. F_. W. Heubach, of the firm of

at his offices in the Union bank bnlld-

make Tuxedo the most accosslblo of

"In planning Tuxedo Park our tdea
has been not only to provide bcauli-
tul suburban homesltes, but to also
afford residents all the comforts, conveniences and amusements of metropolitan life. Tuxedans will be supplied with water tlirough our own or

without saying. Hero we are surrounding on three sides the buildings

Mr Heubach grew enthusiastic in
telling of the beauties of Tuxedo and
of the many advantages of owning a

become the most popular as well as
the most desirable of all Winnipeg
suburban districts.

Persons who .should have known better thought Westinghouse visionary
when they were told that he proposed
to stop a train by air. Nobody seemed
inclined to let him try bis plan on a
real train, but thev did not object to
liis working a model of it in a shop
where lie couldn't do any harm, nor
involve anyone else in expense. He
knew that his scheme would work, but
he could not fnake anyone else believe
it. Bo he continued to sell - s im Billion for replacing derailed cars on the
track, and to talk about liis brake to
any railroad man was willing to
"Well, have you ever stopped a
train with tliis air thing of yours?"
they would usk.
No, ho couldn't say that he had
done so. Nobody would lot him try it

One day he arrived in Pittsburgh,
selling liis otlier invention and talking
about liis brake notion to a man
connected   with   a   railroad   out  there.
"Thnt's a great idea of yours,"

So tlm officials of this railroad permitted Westinghouse lo put his new

A Model City Government.
The government of Manchester is a
business. Its liabilities are about
$1*>6,000,000; its assets are about
$ 14i,000,000 ; and the deficiency
about $ 9,000,000, represents the
amount which the ratepayers have
to contribute each jear. The
figures indicate that it is a big
business. The management of this
big business is absolutely in the
hands of the oity council acting
through its committees. As I have
said, the system is simple, and the
responsibility cannot be evaded as it
can be in a muddled-up, complicated
system like .that of New York or
Chicago or Newark. The people know
what has to be done, and they know
who has to do it. But, even at that,
big figures are confusing to the average mind. And then, too, it is well
(to submit the figures whicji a city
council publishes to an unsympathetic
eye. And so, because the peoplo of
Manchester pronose to know what is
done with their money, they have in
their service two men whose business
it is to investigate and publish at
regular intervals, every tendency of
the council toward carelessness or
extravagance, Never for a momenf;
are the councillors permitted to forgot, whose money it is thut they are
managing with such fluent ease.
These two men are known as elective auditors. They are elected directly by the people, and the more
merciless their attacks on the council
the better they please tlio people.
They are free from the slightest obligation to the council. They huve ae-
cess to all facts and figures, for Unpeople of Manchester find it difficult
tc understand why their government
managed by their personal representatives with their money, should not
work wholly in the light. These reports are published weekly in the
Muii-iester City News." — Samuel

Next in importance to the growing
of good crops is the proper storing oi
them after they have been grown. In
the Canadian West proper storage ol
wheat has engaged the attention and
capital of some of the strongest financial men and is yearly attracting men
and capital from the south and east.
Tlie rapid handling of wheat is reduced to a science in the Canadian
West. To any wheat growing area so
far inland as the Canadian West, the
cheapest route to the sea is a matter
ot primary importance so that terminal elevator storage on a large scale
began almost before interior storage
was considered.
Tlie Canadian Pacific railway erected their first elevator at Fort William
the head of interior navigation, as
early as 1884, when elevator "A" w-as
begun. It received the crop of 1885
and was considered a giant in those
days, having u capacity of 1,250,000
bushels. It is still doing business ut
the old stand, and has been joined by
B, C, D and K, all o. modern construction and equipment and with a total
capacity of 8,500,000, and in addition
there are located at Fort William the
Empire elevator with a capacity ol
1,700,000 bushels, and the Ogilvie with
a capacity of 500,000 This gives Fort
William a storage capacity of 10,750,-
Port Arthur, tho adjoining town,
has the largest wheat elevator in the
world. This is bho magnificent tile
tank elevator of the Canadian Northern railway with a capacity of 8,500,-

vator plant is of tho most modem
typo. All the elevators call he reached
by freighters of 18 foot draught
and the total loading capacity at the
head of the lakes is 480,000 bushels
per hour. The unloading from curs
takes longer than to load into vessels, yet 145,000 bushels or 145 cars
can be.-unloaded hourly, and a higher
rate than this has beeu mude during
he rush beforo tho closo of navigation.
Like all prairie countries, where a
farmer may put in a hundred acres ol
whoat before ho builds a house or
stable, the need of storage was early
felt in the Canadian west. For u time
it was met by small elevators and fiat
warehouses, and considerable wheat
was loaded direct  from  the threshing
to the ears n the  rapid  increase
of crops this was soon outgrown, and
elevator companies with a large capital were formed. Largo elevators
were erected ull over the country at
overy wheat centre, their tall, gaunt
red figures being seen for miles ucross
tho level prairie.
In 11)00, just six years ago, there
wore 519 elevators at interior points
iu the Canadian West with u total
capacity of 15,379,000 bushels. Lust
year there were 1,018 elevators witli
a capacity of 28,708,030 bushels, representing an investment of close on
$55,000,000, no slight indication in itself of the permaneii. character ol
Wheat growing as an industry in the
Cunadittu West.
All those elovators are under government' supervision, each elevutoi
being under license and its capacity
duly attested, bjing on tile in the office
of the "warehouse commissioner)"
whoso headquarters are in Winnipeg.
All grain is subject to government inspection at Winnipeg and is there
graded through the ofiice of the cliiel
grain inspector of the Dominion ol
Canada. All grain weighed into terminal elevators is weighed nuclei' the
inspection of the government weigh-
master, and the curs must strictly comply with the conditions in tlio certificate of inspection made at Winnipeg
All grain weighed into vessels must be
weigned under the eye ol a government weigh—taster. in tact everything is done to safeguard the inter

Of late years thero has been a marked increase in the milling capacity »,

progress of building or are being planned for Keivatiu, Winnipeg unci othei

mills already in operation at various
centres and numerous smaller mills
at coUntry points will increase the
total milling capacity of Western Canada to over 30,000 barrels daily.

Prof. Leacock of McGill and His Opinions  on  the  Empire.
'Tm Inclined to think that the period
ln which we now live will be In the future looked upon as a period of Imperial crisis," began Prof. Leacock of McGill University In an address before the
Toronto Canadian Club recently. Proceeding, he pointed out. that the coming years would be the years of great
empires. It will no longer be a little
England, a little Holland, a little
France. In the vast extent of tha British Empire there were divisions which
might become dangerous, divisions ln
commerce, divisions ln military arrangements and in other ways. In tha
British Empire there were a severance
and a sunderance ln the tariffs—one
tariff ln Canada, another ln Newfound
land, another ln tho Leeward Islands,
and so on. In military and naval defence, too, there were the same divergencies, and In control of the seas lay
the safety of the Empire, yet the whole
burden of the navy, totalling 1184,000,-
000 was laid on (he shoulders of the
people of Britain, and that burden had
reached Its high-level mark and could
not be Increased, yet Canada practically subscribed nothing towards the cost
of the navy. The traditions and tha
necessities of Britain required a fleet
equal to the combined fleets of any two
European, but now Japan and the
United States were entering on a
course of military nnd especially of
naval expansion, which might change
'the balance of naval power.
What was necessary was really a reconstruction of Imperial relations. He
was aware that many people were opposed to tho very Idea of any Imperial
reconstruction, and they were urged to
allow the ordinary evolution of affairs
to work out a settlement of the difficulties surrounding the peoples of the Empire. After a playful reference to tha
doctrine of evolution, which had given
so much trouble to theorists, he clearly
realized that the Idea of Imperial federation, with the necessary creation of
local Parliaments for all parts of the
Empire, would not be readily accepted
by the British people. He thought the
conservatism of tho British people
would be slow to adopt these proposals.
If, however, such a plan was not yel
feasible, he thought that to the present
670 members of tlio British House ot
Commons, thero might be added 166
representatives from the white populations of the colonies. Comparing tha
population of Canada with that of Ireland, ho urged that the Do minion
should have Its representatives at Westminister to make or unmake Imperial
Cabinets as did the Irish member.*
Without direct representation, Canada
could not directly Influence the British
Imperial Parliament.
With such a representation the tarlft
question, and that of Imperial defenca
would be dealt with ln a proper manner. Canada and the other colonies
would thus bo represented In an Imperial Parliament which would have tha
power to enforce taxation for Imperial
purposes. He was awaro that auch a
proposal would bo looked upon as quixo-
tlo by many. Thero were, however,
many who would talk and rave about
their willingness to puy CO cents or $1
annually to tho British Exchequer towards the cost of defence, but how
many had sent their money direct to
Britain. It required some force or authority to compel such payments.
Our safety lay In union with the Empire. We could not exist as an Independent nation. The forces of sectionalism were at work, and lt was timo to
have done with the Canada Drat cry
and unite for the Empire,

Hut Sutcombe's face grew pale,
and, laying the quartz down, he drew

Wood," he suid—not "IVcimn," ns

ber. "If—if there is much of this, you
—ynu must be very rich!"
"II" sbe snid. "Ab, yes. I suppose
so; but—but it wns not for myself
—" She stopped, for bis faco had
grown hot, nnd his eyes flashed nlmost resentfully. Vivienne laid her
bund  upon his arm imploringly.
"Watt, wait till sbe bus finished,
Sutcombe," she whispered.
Nina looked from one to the other
and. comprehending, colored almost
as hotly ns Sutcombe.
"No, no!" sho said. "I—I was not
going to oITer you these, Indeed they
are not mino"—she paused—"ouly

more: my father snid the Island wus

"And—and no one knows of this

"No one but I—and one other, the

He wiped his brow, for to ths
least mercenary of men the presence
of a vast quantity of gold, with prospective possession, is rather a discomposing fact, one not to be contemplated without a thrill.
"And  he?"  he asked,   breathlessly.
"Where is he?   Why is he not here?"
The color left her faco and her lids
"I do not know," she said in a
low voico. "He—ho may bo dead!"
"Ho did not cscapo with you?"
asked Sutcombe.
She mndo a movomont of her hand,
as if tho question, tho subject, pained her.
"No—I left him here. I—ah, do not
ask rae any more!"
Vivienne leaned forward and touched her hand. "No, no, dear, we will

thi3 lonely place! To havo suffered,

a word more shull bs spoken, dear
Sutcombc lenned against the log
wall of the hut, his arms folded, his
syes fixed, not on the gold, but on
the floor.
"And it was for us, for us that
you have worn yourself to a shadow
with anxiety and hope deferred," he
said. "That we might have this
"Why not?" she broke in. "Would
you not have done tbe same for me,
for any friend? And what true
friends you have been to me! And
what is the use of it if it cannot be
put to such good service?"
"And you never thought of yourself?" he snid, very quietly. "Vou
were not rich—"
"Very poor, indeed," she said
with a laugh.
"And you never thought of finding
this island, this Eldorado, for your
own benefit?"
"No," sho said simply; "what
should I have done with it? What is
the use of money when—" Sh» paused. "Besides I was lucky so soon. I
thought so much of my work, of my
play, that if the gold had been lying
on Ilampstead Heath instead of on a
mysterious island in tho wide ocean,
I don't think 1 should have troubled
to tako the train for it." Sho sighed, thon, with a winning smile, slio
went up to him and touched his
Bleeve. "Lord Sutcombc, you won't
let scruples interfere, you won't—
make difficulties?"
He longed to tako tho hand that
touched him so pleadingly, to draw
hor outside and say, "I will tako the
gold you offer nie so generously if
you will be still nioru generous and
givo me thnt which I valuo beyond
all the gold in the world—yourself!"
But he knew, though ho could not
have told how ho knew, that this
was of all momonts tho worst for
such a question; of all places, this
iho least favorable.
"No," ho said, drawing in a long
breath. "I'm not so churlish—so foolish. I am still too amazed—at present, it all seems like a story out of
an adventure book—to quits realize
it; but—I uct'epl your generous oftcr.
If tho gold is bore for tho finding-
well, Vivienne nnd you shull bo
"Ves!" said Vivienno with womanly cunning. "I accept unreservedly.
I have hated tin: thought of being
poor! Why, think of it! We should
have had to sell the Ariel at Melbourne, hnve iK'cn obliged to go in
for farming, or something of that
kind, or settled in -somo stuffy town
on tho Continent. And now we can
keep tho dear okl yacht, and we can
all go back to England—and you
can buy back Southcrwood, Sutcombe—I told you how it passed
from us, Decline? And I can get
those pearls I wanted, and—oh,
what will you do with all your
money, you niillionniress?" sho broke
off, drawing Kina to her and hugging!
Nina tried to smile. What, indeed?
The uselossnejs of the gold mocked
her nt that moment as it had mocked her the day il had been found.
Thero wus only one thing sho wanted, and it is the ono thing no monoy
can buy—forgOtfulnoSSl But sho
strove to dispel the black shadow
from her mind.
"Oh, I'll found a National Thoatro
—for tho {performance of artistic
dramas—by 'Herbert Wood!' " sho
said. "But now let us bo practical,
its I'oily would sny. This is a dangerous secret, Lord Sulcombo. You
know now why I thought it better
thut wo should lnnd alono?"
Ife nodded.
"Let mc think!" He took out his
pipe. "May 1? Thanks! Yes, the
the men mustn't lnnd here, nt any
rate; they must not come further into tho island than necessary. Wo
went  wnter—"
"Thoro in plenty near the beach!"
Said Nina. .:i ii'.ts._■  ,.  t>i_.h:  hack camo
me times wnen site wanton nwn tire
stream with the can in her hand, and
Vane coming to meet her to take it
from her,
"Quite so. They shall get what
they want, and Barnes shall take the
Ariel on a cruise, leaving us here.
Thero are enough  provisions—"
And there arc fish and duck, and
turtles in plenty," said poor Nina,
trying to smile.
Vivienne clapped her hands and
nodded gleefully, though all the time
she was watching Nina from the corner of her gentle eyes. "Why, it will
be like a picnic, a real picnic! Even
if there had not been all this wonderful jgold, it would have been
worth all the trouble—ah, but not
your anxiety, dear!—just to see so
beautiful and romantic a place. It ie
liko a Fairy Islel"
Nina turned away swiftly; the name
was like a stab.
They talked over Sutcombe's plan,
and presently he went down to the
beach, signalled the boat und sent it
off for rugs, bedding and provisions;
ond when these were brought he went
aboard, told Dames they intended
picnicking on the island, and ordered him to tako tho Ariel on a cruise
and pick thom up in a week's time.
When he came back ho found that
the two women had already started
tho picnic. Nina's hut had been
transformed into quite a snug and
comfort nble bower with the aid of
the rugs and other things brought
from the yacht, and Nina, Vivienno
told him, was down at the old
"saloon" getting tea.
"It's the most wonderful, tho
most bewitching place, Sutcombc,"
Vivienne said from the cosy nest in
which Nina had_ bestowed her. "The
'saloon' is tho large hut where tho
mon lived. We have arranged that
you are to sleep in a corner of it—
for thu other hut is not so comfortable, flecima says. Sho thinks of
everything; indeed, sho ls as wonderful as the island! I tell her she is
the fairy of tho enchanted spot, and
that presently she will wave her
hand and wo shall wake up to find
wo are on board tho Ariel and that
wo havo been asleep and dreaming.
Havo you looked at thoso lumps of
gold again, Sutcombc? Are you sure
they won't turn into 'chunks' of just
common rock? Can you realize yet
this good fortune of ours?"
"No," hs said. "I can only realize
that sho has made us rich again,
that— I'll go and seo if I can help
When ho went down to the saloon,
carrying some provisions with him,
Nina Was sitting over the fire she had
made, her head resting on her hands,
her eyes fixed dreamily and sadly on
the blaze. Her wholo pose reminded
him of Millais' exquisite "Cinderella," und he stopped and looked down
at her for a moment with his heart's
longing in his frank blue eyes; and
the longing slid into a yearning to
pierce the secret of the sad face that
she turned to him, sad though she
smiled nnd said,  brightly enough:
"It is nearly boiling. Have you
brought tho tea? lt is past Lady
Vivienne's time, ypu know."
"Y'es, here's tho tea," he said.
"Dut 1 was not thinking 0f Vivienne,
Docima, but of you. How could I
think of any one else at such a moment? To speak pf thanks"—he mude
a gesture of despair—"but if you
knew how full my heart is—"
"Don't!" she snitl, quickly, and
with u touch of reproach, "Huve I
even tried to thank you both for all
your goodness to me? Be as generous!" She laughed up ot him
through the thin veil of sudness.
"There! It is boiling ut, lust. The
teapotl Thanks. Now, if you'll carry  the kettle—"
She gavo him no time for more
words, but talked quickly and brightly as she led tho way buck to tho
ludies' hut. Her effort at cheerfulness
ditl not end here, and proved successful, for, notwithstanding the shadow
of the past which hung over her, the
fact that she had beetf able to befriend these two who had been so
good to hor uplifted her.
"We shull have to work hard," sho
said, us she poured out the tea, "for
a week is not a long time."
"We can send the Ariel away
again, or we cnn come Imck, now
thut wo know the way here,'' said
Sutcombe eagerly, for the thought
that they three were alone on this
Island, that ho should sue her nearly
every hour of the day wns a secret
Joy to him; but Nina did not respond.
"You will soon lire of the solitude," she suid in a low voice. "Tomorrow 1 will take you were we—I—
suw some of the gold. There is a
spado"—she winced as the scene of
the burial of her father and poor
Fleming rose before her—"and some
Other tools we brought from the
wreck; and while you arc getting the
gold, 1 will go nud fish."
"You fish! Why, how did you
lenrn, who taught you?" cried
"I—I—havu watched—peoplo fishing," snid Nina.
Vivienne looked round wondering-
ly. "Oh, it's just a dream, as I
sny!" she laughed. "Think of it,
Decimal Here ure you and we two
silting here on this remote island,
just wo threo on this fairy isle, and
fnr away in giddy London, with its
electric lights and its ceaseless
crowds, aro our friends, the people
we know, lcudlng tho same old
dreary, monotonous lives, in the
same old, smoky air, Why, Decima,
do you realize that tbey ure just at
this moment—or is the time different?
—thronging to the Momus to see the
latest successful piny? If they could
only see the author]"
'I hoy busied themselves with tho
necessary work of this most realistic
picnic until nearly nightfall, and at
lust Vivienne, suddenly growing tired
with thu excitement, was persuaded
by„Nina to co to bed.

Method Employed at  Minnesota Experiment  Station.
The following method of caring for
calves is in use at the Minnesota experiment station dairy barn and seems to
give the most satisfactory results,
writes P. D. S. ln Northwestern Agriculturist. After the calf has run with
his mother two or three days and bas
been put ln good order by her colostrum
milk be should be takeu away and shut
up In a very small pen, a partition off
from tbe Iurge calf peu, so that he cannot suck the otlier calves' ears, which
Is a very objectionable practice to allow In a bunch of calves.
Now, right at this stage comes a very
critical time for the calf. White scours
only too ofteu utlaek bim at this period,
uud often, too, be ls laid low by calf
cholera. Now is the time to give a preventive. Take about a pint bottle of
milk at tbe temperature of 08 degrees
I"., no cooler, and put In It a teaspoonful of any of the good creosote disinfectant compounds for sale iu tlio market. This, of course, Is a germicide aud
will kill the germs of (he cholera In the
itomnch of the calf. I know this to be
I good remedy uud If given will uften
save a calf's life.
The next thing the calf must do ls to
lenrn to drink out of u pull. This often
takes time aud patience. Be free with
both, ns a little dairy calf three days
old ls pretty teuder and must be handled carefully. First of all, you must
have tbnt whole milk at the temperature of the mother's body, about 98 degrees. The cause of the most of the
scours iu calves Is feeding cool milk.
Dip the finger In the milk nud then let
the calf suck it off once or twice, menu-
while drawing his head In this way
closer aud closer to the pail until his

It ls believed, by vegetarians that a
purely vegetable diet makes people
amiable, good natured, generous, developing the finer characteristics of the
user, and that excessive meat eaters
become the opposite.
Whether this be true or not, fresh
vegetables are appreciated in the early
spring. They are an essential change
from the heavy wluter viands and
should form the greater part of our
dally menus.
Almost every vegetable has Its particular use in tho human system, and
nature provides sufficient variety to
keep us ln fine bodily condition If we
will live ln accordance with her laws
and not abuse ber gifts.
Tomatoes act directly on the liver.
Onions, garlic, Ieets, shallots, chives,
stimulate the circulation, increase tbe
saliva and gastric juices and promote
Pears, beans and lentils, called also
legumes, are among tbe most nutritious of vegetables, containing as much
carbon as wheat and more muscle
forming food.
Lettuce and celery both have a good
effect upon the nerves. The former
ls soothing and the latter a tonic.
The free uso of pieplant, or rheu-
barb, Is considered a "spring tonic"
and will prevent the use of medicine
which Is often apparently necessary to
tone up the system. Being such a common and inexpensive plant, It ls really
uot appreciated by the majority of'
housewives. When so fortunate as to
have It growing In the garden It Is
generally used In small amounts for
pies early In the seasou and the re-
muzzle Is right in llie milk.   After he I niainder allowed to go to waste, when
once gets his mouth Iuto It be will very
loon learn to drink. He should be fed
on whole milk for about n month aud
then for two or three weeks on half
and half and then ou skim milk.
At the station we find it a very good
practice to put blood meal and boue
meal in the skim milk. Others use flaxseed me.il with very good success.
Afler the calf Is u month old perhnps
be will ent a little buy, nnd then you
can turn him out In the big pen with
the rest of the calves. Now, as these
young animals are very susceptible to
parasites and dlsenses and as such
pests thrive well lu moist, dirty places,
we therefore see that it is very important that we keep the calves and pen
clean by tlie liberal use of fork and
brush and occasional application of a
disinfectant. Above nil things, the
driukiug pulls must be kept scrupulously clean. It takes a little time, of
course, but it pays, because it kills disease. Dou't be afraid to use plenty of
bedding to keep the little calves off
the damp floor.
lt might be utilized In a variety of appetizing dishes all the year around,
as It can be preserved for winter use
equally as well as tbe more expensive
fruit.—Philadelphia Press.
Milk is capable of absorbiug almost
any odor with which it conies In contact, and during the process of milking
a large amount of air is incorporated
Into It, driven by the streams of milk
from the udder, suys Kimball's Dairy
Parmer. If this uir ls pure, it will aid
In cooling and aerating the milk; if Impure, it will taint tbe milk with whatever disagreeable odor and undesirable
bacteria it contains. No other article
of human food will absorb more of tbe
surrounding atmosphere than milk.
How mauy of us would like to have
our eutlre breakfast left in an ordinary cow barn for twenty to thirty minutes, as Is often done with milk? Remembering that milk is a human food
and that It absorbs injurious odors ss
quickly, let us be very careful how we
handle lt
A Stall For Each Coir.
There are two ways of considering
economy—one for the cow und the other for the owner, says Hoard's Dairyman. In the end the man who is economical for the cow's sake will find he
has best served bis own economy. The
objection thut most farmers make to
the plan of a stall for each cow ls that
It takes more room. Y'es, but lt Increases the efficiency of the cow, and
barn room Is cheaper than cows.
Teat (he Com,
If you test your cows one day each
week during the milking period and on
the same day of tbe week or will test
them, say, for a week wheu they have
been in milk for a mouth and take
this for the uvernge of uino weeks,
four weeks before the week test and
four nfter, you will find out enough
about your cows to Induce you to make
more full and complete tests hereafter.
—Wallace Farmer.
The Dairy Ball.
When a farmer thinks of buying a
dairy bull to improve the quality of his
future cows he should look to tbe quality of the bulk not to the cheapness of
price. The character and reliability
of the breeder go a great way iu such
a transaction. He should try to buy
a "future" of good quality that will
run on for generations and that will
help increase the good effects of every
future sire that may be used.—Hol-
■tein-Frlesian Register.
Cow Ignorance.
About one-third who milk cows lose
mouey on them. The main cause ls Ignorance.
Improving the Milk.
The work required to sponge an animal's flank and udder is but a trifle,
and great improvement can be made
on the milk aud its products.
Get Rid of  Scrubs.
Scrub care, scrub management and
scrub breeding will perpetuate tlie
scrub animal. It Is the skill and knowledge of right breeding, the influence of
systematic and (arcful feeding, the attention to details tn developing and selecting their breeding st*,.- that will
force the scrub out of existence.
The Hatleu Han.
"The hatless mau is here to stay,"
said a hatter, "and his coming did not
meet with the opposition that the shirt
waist man incurred.
"All but the baldhcads were listless
men last summer. At the seashore,
among tbe mountains, automobillng,
horsebacking, canoeing, rowing, driving,
walking, the young men were invariably hatless. Their faces were tanned,
and the sun had giveu a bright, coppery hue aud a crisp quality to their
"I know a half dozen undergraduates
of Princeton who took a cross country
walk of 200 miles in August without
"This new fashion has hurt the hat
business undeniably. On account of it
my summer sales have been smaller
than ever before. Still I don't grieve.
I like the idea of going hatless. The
fact ls, I went hatless myself during
my vacation. The sun and air did my
hair good.
"When the shirt waist mnn appeared
everybody derided him. A hoot went
up from one end of the country to the
other. But tbe hatless man was received lu silence, an approving silence."—New York Herald.
Like Venn* and For Like Canoe, It Is
Now a Dead World.
Mercury ls a body devoid, practically If not absolutely, of air, of water
and of vegetation. Consequently It ls
Incapable of supporting auy of those
higher organisms whlcb we know as
living beings. Its surface ls a vast
desert It Is rough rather than smooth.
Whether this roughness be due to
mountains proper or to craters we are
too far away from lt to be able
yet to say. The latter is the more
probable. Over the greater part of Its
surface change either diurnal or seasonal is unknown. Three-eighths of Its
surface ts steeped In perpetual glare,
three-eighths shrouded ln perpetual
gloom, while the remaining quurter
slowly turns between the two. The
planet Itself, as a world, is dead.
Interesting as Mercury thus proves
to be, tbe Interest as regards the planet itself ls of a rather corpselike character. Less deterrent perhaps ls the
Interest It possesses as a part of the
life history of tlie solar system, for
tidal friction, tho closing net ln the
cosmic drama, has brought lt where It
ls. The machine has run down.
Whether It ever supported life upon Its

now forever passed away. Like Venus
and for like cause, lt is now a dead
world. And it was the flrst thus to
reach the end of Its evolutionary career, earlier to do so than Venus, Inasmuch as tidal action was very much
greater upon It than on Venus and consequently produced Its effect more
quickly. Mercury has long been dead.
How long, measured by centuries, we
cannot say, but practically for a very
long time. Venus must have become
so comparatively recoutly. Both, however, now have finished their course
and have ln a most literal sense entered Into their rest.
War on Trailing Skirts.
A pretty war of skirts Is being fought
out In a small German town, where the
League Against the Trailing Skirt has
been formed, with the support of the
mayor, who has eveu gone so far as to
regulate In an edict the length of the
offending garment. It ls this last piece
of municipal tyranny that has aroused
the long sufferlug womnn of fashion,
and she has formed a counter Union
of the Liberty of DresB. So far It
seems that the leaguo ls ln the ascendant, for It hns just dined tho mayor triumphantly, while the union,
scorning such gastronomic methods of
bribery, Is trusting to greater elegance
of appearance for the propitiation of
the masculine authorities.
Be Spoke Ills Mind.
Two Irish farmers wbo had not Been
each other for a long time met at a
fair. They bad a lot of things to tell
each otlier. "Sliure, It's married I am,"
said Murphy. "Yon don't tell me so,"
snld Moran. "Fall, yes," said Murphy, "an' I've got a flue, healthy bhoy,
which the neighbors say Is the very
picture of me." Moran looked for a
moment at Murphy, who was not to
say the least remarkable for his good
looks, and then said, "Cell, well, what's
the hniiini so long as the child's
'ooltliv?"—Dublin Gazette.
Phonographs In' Court.
The use of a phonograph ns a witness occurred for the flrst time on a
recent trial in the United States court
at Boston. In this connection lt ls recalled that photographs had to fight
their way to the witness stand. The
right to put telephoue conversations ln
evidence hns been upheld in some
cases. If the use of the phonograph as
a witness becomes general lt will also
become a universal memorandum.
Contracts of all sorts, from a merger
deal to a promise of marriage, can be
recorded as infallibly as on paper or
parchment In breach of promise
cases especially a phonograph would
be of great value—St Louis Post-Dls-

Hot to Know This Island Ia Not to
Know Greece.
There are some lands which have always laid a spell upon the mind, upon
the Imagination, upon tho heart Greece,
above all other countries, has entranced
tho mind. The imagination has ever
loved the east—Egypt, the Indies, forgotten Asia, the almost as mysterious
Asia of today. For most of us the
home land ls the country of the heart;
for many, it may bo, It ls Palestine,
where was lighted the lire at which
the hearts of Incalculable millions are
still warmed. Others are content to
say with Emerson in the fine essay on
"Heroism," "That country Is the fairest
which Is inhabited by the noblest
minds." But, above all other lands,
there ls one which haB at once Impressed the mind, the Imagination and the
heart of western peoples. When a fa
nious poet declared that on his heart
would be found engraved the word
Italy the words voiced the emotion of
a multitude in every couutry of Europe and in tho great northern continent oversea.
To see Sicily, the oid "Garden of the
Sun," as the poets have loved to call lt,
Is uot to see Italy, though there may be
a measure of truth ln Goethe's remark
that not to know Sicily is not to know
Italy. In a sense one might moro truly say of Sicily that not to know It ls
not to know Greece. In another sense,
however, we have In this most beautiful of Islands the Intensification of
Italy. Whatever ls most Italian Is ln
evidence here, though It is Italian of
the south and not of the north. What
a gulf divides them is known only to
those familiar with the whole peninsula.—William Sharp ln Century.

Last ot the Aristocrats.
"The old French aristocracy dies with
me," cried the Priucess de Valmout on
her deathbed. She was a bitter old
soul, who, born of a loug line of un-
contamlnated ancestors aud married
to a noble of equally superfine strain,
had, through her husband's death tn
financial difficulties, to marry her five
children to "abominable persons" of
high character, but with the blight of
trade or Industry In their blood. Her
last years were made mournful to her
by this pitiful descent, and just before
her grandiose last utterance, looking
with a bitter smile at her children and
grandchildren in tears round her deathbed, she broke silence In the following
terrible reflection: "We have here,"
counting on her fingers, "representatives of carriage making, wholesale
grocery, confectionery, coal mining and
the stock exchanges, and all grafted on
the old tree of the De Valmonts."
"Hulls" Not Irish.
Those who are not Irishmen sometimes trespass on Irish property. A
French cure, preaching about sudden
death, said, "Thus It Is with us—we go
to bed well and get up stone dead!"
An old French lawyer writing of an
estate he had Just bought added, "There
ls a chapel upon it in which my wife
and I wish to be buried, lf God spares
our lives."
A merchant who died suddenly left
ln his bureau a letter to one of his correspondents which he had not sealed.
His clerk, seeing lt necessary to send
the letter, wrote nt the bottom, "Since
writing the above I have died."

Ingrowing Toe Nails.
It has been found by some that the
copious application of dried powdered
alum Is sufficient to cure most cases of
Ingrowing toe nails. The applications
are not painful, and the Inflamed tissue Is dried up, aud a hard, resistant
nonsensltlve bed Is formed for tbe nail.
The toe Is wrapped In a cloth soaked
ln soap and water for twenty-four
hours beforehand, and then the powdered alum ls poured Into the space
between the nail and Its bed, using
cotton to keep tbe alum in place and
repeating the application dally. The
suppuration, If any exists, rapidly
dries up, pain and discomfort are almost Immediately relieved, and, the
application being repeated for about
five days, a cure usually results.

Crushing a Bore.
An Englishman, complimenting Americans on their skill at postprandial oratory, wont on to discuss the possibility of boring an audience. He said the
severest reproof for a bore which he
recollected was that administered by
the great Talleyrand while driving with
a friend who kept telling him Btorles.
As they passed through the streets of
a continental town, which In those
days were policed by many sentries,
they observed one sentry yawn at his
post, and Talleyrand said to his friend:
"HushI  We are overheard."

A Well-Known J. P. is Cured of Kid
ney Trouble of Long  Standing  by
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Banda, Ont., May 21—(Special.)—
There Is no one more widely known
and highly respected In this section
of the country than Wm. Bell, Esq.,
J. P., and the statement he makes below concerning his cure by Dodd's
Kidney Pills bears weight and carries
conviction with it.
"For more than a year I was a sufferer from kidney trouble," Mr. Bell
says. "Always in pain and at times
the agony would become unendurable
and I was practically unable to attend
to any of my duties. I doctored with
several local physicians and tried
every means to get cured, but without
success. At last I was induced to
give Doild's Kidney Pills a trial. I have
the greatest pleasure In stating that
they drove away the pains entirely
and restored me to my old lime health
and strength. I nm sure I owe this
entirely to Dodd's Kidney Pills."

town of Hannibal, Missouri.
"There are ln the world," he said,
"a good many men like Jonathan
Scarborough   of  Hannibal.
"Scarborough was one of those
men, with nothing evil absolutely
known against them, who are yet
looked on, and no doubt justly, with
"lt was thought of Scarborough
that, for a poor man, he ate too much
chicken. And one day the blow fell.
He was arrested lor chicken stealing.
"A witness was called to testify as
to Scarborough's character.
"Did you ever know this man to
steal poultry?" asked the lawyer for
the defence. •
" 'No, I never did,' said the witness,
'But this is what I do know; If I was
a chicken, and Jonathan Scarborough
was  about,  I'd roost  high.'"
Chairs Used by Mary Queen of Scots
Owned by a Winnipeg Man.
Two Qf the original set of nine
chairs composing the bedroom set of
Mary Queen of Scots during her eighteen years of Imprisonment in Fother-
ingay castle, are in Winnipeg.
The relics have been in the possession
of an English family for generations,
have followed a member of the family
across to Canada, and have gone, like
other family heirlooms, to pay the
debts accumulated by the young man.
The chairs are now in the possession
of R. A. Douglas and are stored In
the W. U. Douglas feed store, Princess
and James streets.
On May 13, 1508, Mary Queen of
Scots was taken to Potherlngay castle
charged with conspiring aguiiiBt the
life of Elizabeth of England. During
her long imprisonment In the castle
awaiting the trial wliich finally decreed that she should die, all of the
ancient furniture of the luxurious
prison remained Intact. Some time
after the death of Mary Queen of
Scots a raid was made on the castle
by the ancestors of the family who
have held possession of the furniture
and many other relics for so many
yenrs,- and many of the paintings, silverware and plate were rilled from
the ca3tle. The bedroom set was among the goods stolen from the castle.
Seven of the pieces are now held by
the Countess of Warwick In England
and the two in Winnipeg are the only
known relics of the famous prison of
the Scotch queen known to be this
side or the Atlantic.
Anthony BabDington was accused
of being implicated 1n the plot with
Mary. One of the chairs bears a "T.
B." in deep carved letters. Whether
this bo the initial of the famous Tony
Babblngton is not. known. Another
chair bears "E.R." which is thought
by Air Douglas to mean Elizabeth Re-
As antique relics the chairs are of
high value. They are insured for
$1,000, and it was only recently that
the Countess of Warwick offered a fab-
lous price for them so that she conld
complete her set. It seems, however,
that It was only when Dame Fortune
played false with tbe unfortunate
member of the English family that he
wns willing to part with any of the
articles that had been held for so
many years by his family. The chairs
are blackened by age. Parts of them
are crumbling away to wormwood,
and they are only held together by
the most careful handling. A mere
glance at the relics of the beautiful
queen seems to recall to the
mind the tragedy that marks one of
the saddest pages of English history.
The age blackened wood, tne warping hand carved figures seem to bring
a waft of tragedy and of prison gloom,
as if they too had played a small part
in the life of the fair prisoner. ,

When you plan your meals you^
never think of bread, yet you always '
have it, and if it is left off the table
it is the first thing that is missed.
You can live without bread, but
you can live without any other
food with less hardship—think along
these lines and the absolute necessity
of bread comes home to you.
And because it is a necessity, its
quality should be the best—quality in
bread depends largely upon the flour.

Lord Strathcona on Western Canada.
In the special Canadian number of
tho London Financier and Ilullionlsl
is published an interesting interview
with Lord Strathcona, in the course
of which the High Commissioner says:
"I nm personally acquainted—intimately acquainted—with the Western
States or the Republic, as well as with
the Northwest of Canada. I can say
from personal knowledge that the
capacity of the latter for growing
cereais and other crops is greater
than that of tho country farther south
lt is a well-known fact that, other
conditions being equal, the further
north cereals are grown, providing
they have time to mature before the
winter, the better the quality. They
grow faster owing to the longer period
of sunshine they get in the higher
latitude. This is thoroughly understood and admitted. Forty years ago
the northwest of Canada—what wns
then called Prince Rupert's Land—
produced no foodstuffs. The few
whites who were then in the employ
of the Hudson's Buy Company imported everything they required in
the way of food. Flour, meat, biscuits, butter, and even poultry and
eggs were brought In from Eastern
Canada and the United States. And
that same country—now known us
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Asslnibola
and Alberta—is now producing over
100,000,000 bushels a year of cereals.
With regard to immigration Lord
Strathcona said "Here ln England if
a mnn is of that stamp that when he
gets the opportunity to work he does
not—If he won't or cannot work—at
least he may have relations or friends
or someone who may time un Interest
in him of some sort, but in Canada
such a man would have no chance.
There, If a man won't work wben he
has the opportunity, he goes down—it
1s all over with him.Now to induce
people of that sort to go would be
cruelty. There is room in the Dominion of Canada for millions of workers, but not for one idler."

Incidents of the Moscow  Revolution.
It was impossible to go quietly about
your business, even in those parts of
the city whore there had been no disturbances. A dozen nines a day you
were peremptorily ordered to stop,
and had to submit to an offensive
search by more or less drunken soldiers.
This, of course, did not trouble the insurgents, as there were not enough
soldierB to search at every street corner, and those who carried uiins found
it possible, almost without exception,
to avoid the putrols. But if you were
in a hurry to go anywhere you were
sure to be held up two or three times.
1 was searched twice in two minutes
at the Iberian t-uite. Another time
1 wus riding along the Leontlefsksia
witli a friend. C,ur sleigh wus stopped and we both had to get out. A
young officer, having searched the
sleigh—I suppose for bombs—allowed
iny friend to gut in again.
He then turned to me and began—
rather nervously—to searob nie. By
chance 1 had u large pipe in my
pocket, and through my heavy over-
cent it might huve looked like a revolver. He cried out un older, nnd
three soldiers with fixed bnyonets rushed to protect bim. My friend told mo
afterwards thut I looked like

gathering in the lanoes of the Austrian nud n fling way for liberty. At
tlio time she wns thoroughly frightened, ns sho thought thut 1 might have

whether the soldiers were sober enough
to search mo first or whether they
would, as often happened, shoot first,
nnd search afterwards. I hnd to stand

If  I had chance to meet him by the
In all the golden sunshine of the day,
No pleasant ward I might be found
to say.
But since he could no longer come to
The world, love-smitten, dreaming at
his feet,
Nor feci within his pulse the Spring
tide beat.
Nor love again, I gave for him instead
And poured upon'his low, unconscious
The sacramental love that shrives the
And though I went my way with eye
lids wet
For  grief of one whom  I  had never
Because his day so soon was finished
I  lifted up my face to Heaven again
Believing human love was not in vain,
But, moved and softened by the sud

Of friendship, I touched    the    larger
Of universal love, and  understood
The passion of our common brotherhood.
